Santé South Wine Festival is a destination event and international showcase of the world’s premier wines and some of Mississippi’s most succulent culinary delights. Founded by Norm Rush of BeauMad & Associates, the festival benefits Alzheimer’s Mississippi.
Since 2006, Santé South has grown into the largest wine and culinary extravaganza in the state of Mississippi. A signature for the capital city of Jackson, it has generated more than $450,000 in proceeds for Alzheimer’s Mississippi. Truly Mississippi’s top luxury wine and food experience! Epicureans and connoisseurs in the greater Southeast revel in the fresh and flavorful cuisine. Only small production and boutique wineries are invited to Santé South.
Boutique vintners from across the globe travel to Mississippi to present their annual new release wines. Santé South affords a rare opportunity for the wine enthusiast to speak directly with the winemaker and features more than 120 exceptional wines and fine food samplings from more than 20 top Mississippi restaurants. World-class wine offerings reveal the highest quality available from all corners of the winemaking-world stemming from a passion for wine and the desire to share it with others.
It is our honor for the 12th consecutive year to make Alzheimer’s Mississippi the recipient of the proceeds from this event.
